Real Feed Sack Pillows!

  I am so taken, in-love, infatuated, and just frankly crazy about all the feed sack designs. The uses are many from pillow, towels, clothing to upholstery. So. So , I thought I would try my hand at this. First, I had to find a soft feed sack that I loved the graphics. Bingo, At my local antique mall, I found just what I was looking for. This feed sack (no before pic) was not only soft, but it had two different graphics, one on each side and all for only $5.  I washed it first, then began the process. Here is the outcome!
The square pillow was made with black and white check back and piping.
Fun graphics on square pillow!
This side graphic was very stained. I first coffee stained to help mask the stains. Then brush fringe was used for the edges.

Buttonholes and buttons were used to be able to insert pillow form.
